Would I be allowed to do Ireland considering we're not participating in this year's World Cup due to last year's farce?

I have the same question.

( Fast did because he's small and I'm happy. Especially for the grass I usually completely fail. )

Yes, Mushroom Kingdom isn't an allowed contry.
But I don't know a lot about football, and I don't want to do favoritism. Can I do several version with several countries ?
(two of my origins and one I'm living in ?)

(And also non qualificated ones goes also ?)

A enraged wererat clawing itself.
Based on the shirt design, which has three red stripes and three white stripes. (ref: http://www.footballshirtculture.com/10/11-kits/france-2010-adidas-home-shirt-unveiled.html)
I wasn't sure if I should remove or keep the 'fantasy football' writing, but it interacted badly with the head.

More contrast can help that...I think.  Nice job on it by the way.

So yes, you can. As long as the country of your choice really is your favourite. Don't lie because we'll find out. (Not really)

Hi, everyone, here is my entry.

 
Curupira is a male supernatural being from Brazil's folklore.
It originates from the Tupi indian mithology and he usually takes the form of a boy with flaming hair and green teeth.
 
His most startling characteristic, however, is that his feet are turned to face backwards.
 
To protect the forest from the destructive habits of man, he tolerates those who hunt for food but is infuriated by those who hunt for the pleasure and will lay traps and confuse them so that they become eternally lost in the forest. His backward feet, for example, have the effect of confusing hunters who may try to follow his tracks.
In addition, he has a super speed, that human eye is unable to follow.
